In early 2016, Indonesian State-Owned Enterprises (SOE’s) have been challenged by Indonesian Government to increase their performances in order to increase Indonesian economic growth. According to Indonesian Minister of Finance Sri Mulyani, State-Owned Enterprises are reflecting the pride of the country, their assets are the symbol of the wealth of the country. She also said that Indonesian Gross Domestic Product is recently US 862 billion, which is rated Indonesia as the 16th world’s largest economy. This position put Indonesia as a country which is more capable maintaining its economic growth than other G20 countries, where this is also confirmed by World Bank that in 2018 Indonesian economic growth will increase by 5.5%. Therefore the achievement as the 16th largest GDP in the world is supposed to be reflected on the assets of Indonesia, such as its State-Owned Enterprises.
Indonesia as developing country still has to face many challenges to develop its economy. These challenges become the responsibility for all integrated parties in Indonesia. One of the challenges is to encourage and to support Indonesia’s State-Owned Enterprises as the symbol of pride, which their wealth since the Asian crisis, has been fading out through these years, especially those with high technology and defense products.
The changing in rules and regulation, the additional government policy packages and also other contribution from many parties, are supposed to give supports for Indonesian Economic Growth in 2017 especially for Indonesia’s State-Owned Enterprises. The regulation such as Government Regulation PP No.72/2016 on Procedures for State Capital Participation which was issued last year as a revision to PP No. 44/2005, regulates the mechanism of state capital participation and administration for State Owned Enterprises.
